I so love this photo of us kissing! I soaked the photo in water for about 20 minutes and then sanded - I think I got a little crazy with the sanding, though! I saw Tim Holtz do this technique on his blog - where you stamp an image in clear embossing powder and paint over it - let the paint set up a bit and then wipe away. The embossing acts as a resist showing the paper below. I thought it turned out pretty cool! I tried lots of different paints but the only one that worked well for me was the Adirondack Dobbers. I guess the paint is pretty thick.
These photos have been printed since last summer and I could never get them to work out right in a LO until this one. The challenge was using strips of paper - which is a different look for me. But I do like the end result!
And last but not least, I want to thank my friend Karen for giving me this award! Thanks so much!! I am flattered that anyone would like my blog enough to nominate it!! ;)Well, the weekend is finally here and we are still sick at our house! I hate the summer flu!! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! :)
